Press sub-editors, or subs, check the written text of newspapers, magazines or websites before it is published. They are responsible for ensuring the correct grammar, spelling, house style and tone of the published work.
Subs make sure that the copy is factually correct and that it suits the target market. They also lay out the story on the page, write headings and may be involved with overall page design.
Like other journalism roles, sub-editing is demanding and requires constant attention to detail within a fast-paced working environment. Subs work on national and local newspapers, magazines and online publications.
